“Have you seen…well, it’s a bit of a… well, it’s hard to describe really…” Dr. Lantha struggled to give the police officer a description.

“What does it look like? Height, weight, unique features?” the officer prodded.

“What would you say, Otto?” Dr. Lantha desperately looked to his chimpanzee lab assistant for some help. Otto just shook his head, wanting no further part in this malady.

“What color is it?” the officer continued.

“Well…you see… the hind end is stripped…like a zebra.” Dr. Lantha described as Otto rolled his eyes.

“A zebra?” the officer questioned, not looking up from his notepad.

  1. I hope the animal doesn’t die of old age before the doctor finishes his description. Funny story!

  2. I like the chimpanzee lab assistant! And good luck to the doctor with this one!!

    Otto is one smart lab assistant… how do you accurately describe this strange animals to the police?? I like how the doctor tries to muddle through it.

  5. Fun. I shall follow Dr Lantha.

  6. Ugh, what a nightmare to describe that to the police. Suffice to say, “it’s a long story.” 🙂
